When I try to connect the TeleMega to my computer via the USB, AltOS sees
the Telemega on COM 10, but when I try to configure altimeter I get an
error (The system cannot find the path specified (3)). I am running AltOS
1.3.1 and Windows 7 Home Premium, and I have no trouble communicating with
my TeleMetrum. Any idea what's wrong?
